Aeronautical Engineering at University of Glasgow - UCAS

Course summary

"AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING:- is about how aircraft are designed, constructed and powered, how they are used and how they are controlled for safe operation. You’ll take part in practical laboratories, including running a jet engine test and a flight-testing course in a Saab 340B aircraft during year 5 of the MEng. There are contributions to aircraft design classes by engineers from the industrial sector and, whenever possible, visits to industrial sites. In year 5 MEng students learn about aircraft handling qualities, aircraft operations, and advanced structural analysis techniques. Half of this year is devoted to project work, which can be carried out in industry, within the University or via a placement abroad. Optional courses are available in years 4 and 5. The MEng programme allows you to take your project in Europe. We also have partner universities in the USA and Australia, where some students undertake their third year of study. The school also sponsors student teams for national (IMechE) and international (AIAA) competitions. Our graduates have been employed by: Williams F1 Nuclear Decommissioning Authority Rolls-Royce plc"
